IKEA has partnered with fashion activist Bea Åkerlund to create a unique line of home décor at affordable prices.

Åkerlund, who created iconic looks, such as the ones found Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” music video and Beyoncé’s striking yellow dress in “Lemonade,” put together a line that mixes Gothic sensibilities with Hollywood glamour, creating décor objects and furniture unlike any other.

Omedelbar’s unique décor launches in IKEA in this month. We picked our favorite pieces from Omedelbar and cannot wait to put these affordable statement pieces in our homes. Take a look:

A rug with a leopard print is one item of the Omedelbar line from IKEA’s collaboration with Bea Åkerlund.

1. The Omedelbar Leopard Print Rug

Animal prints are practically a neutral, so this statement making leopard-print rug can work in any room in your new home. We think it would look fabulous under a coffee table in a great room.

A black lamp shade with fringe is one item of the Omedelbar line from IKEA’s collaboration with Bea Åkerlund.

2. The Fancy Lamp Shade

Fact: this fringe-tastic lampshade would look perfect in a reading nook with warm lighting. Pair it with bold brass hardware to keep it from looking too Edgar Allen Poe-y. (But leave the leg stand out to avoid A Christmas Story references.)

Black hand-shaped wall hangers are one item of the Omedelbar line from IKEA’s collaboration with Bea Åkerlund. The hangers are 3-D printed.

3. The IKEA Omedelbar Iconic Hand Hangers


Form and function merge with these 3-D-printed wall decorations. You can use these edgy hangers to hold anything from jewelry to keys.

A clear top hot-shaped vase is one item of the Omedelbar line from IKEA’s collaboration with Bea Åkerlund.

4. IKEA Omedelbar Hat Vase

The top hat vase comes in two colors, shiny black and clear. Use it as a standalone statement piece, as a unique container for long-stemmed flowers or as a trendy catch all.

A black faux leather chair and ottoman with storage space are just two items of the Omedelbar line from IKEA’s collaboration with Bea Åkerlund.

5. IKEA Omedelbar Armchair and Storage Ottoman

We love how these functional pieces combine a feminine feeling with a rock ‘n’ roll touch. We also love that the ottoman has storage space.

In addition to these edgy pieces the Omedelbar line also has some slightly more conventional décor objects and furniture that could work for people who are not ready to turn up the décor in their new home up to 11, including a brass clothes hanger and a classic-looking wall clock.

2018 is all about going bold in your home. Do you like IKEA’s Omedelbar line? Would you consider using any of these pieces in your home? Let us know in the comments below.
